My new mosaic project is loosely based on peacocks and parrots... it presently looks more like parrots as the blues for the peacock feathers were just a bit too vivid for me to cope with so I changed the colour scheme. I am using SMALTI this time which I haven't ever used before. I love the bright colours and texture you get with this medium, although I am also having to mix it with vitreous tiles in order to be able to afford it! I'm presently quite upset as this is 2 whole day's work and next week is my last week at the Mosaic Course. So it looks like this won't be finished or cast this year... I guess I will just have to do another mosaic course soon.
